Fish production in Bangladesh is estimated to increase to 4.04 million tonnes in 20015-16 fiscal year from 3.88 million tonnes in 2014-15 fiscal.

Fisheries and Livestock Minister Muhammed Sayedul Hoque Tuesday said this adding the country will be self-sufficient in fish through enhancing production up to 4.2 million tones within the next year.

He was addressing a press briefing  in the city marking the beginning of National Fisheries Week-2017.

The fisheries minister said in 2008-09 the country produced only 2.70 million  tonnes fishes and the production was significantly increased to 3.88 million tonnes in 2015-16 fiscal year due to various development programmes taken by the government.
